I started playing tennis when I was 7 years old. I immediately fell in love with the game and wanted to improve so asked my parents if I could have coaching. I became a member of Glendowie Tennis Club and have played there ever since. I have made many friends there and enjoy playing for their U16 Interclub Team. I also enjoy the satellite tournaments over the winter season.
In 2019 I completed the Tennis NZ Assistant Coaching course and was given the opportunity to coach for Kiwi Tennis. This was a great course for helping me to understand how to match activities to the ability of the children. In my spare time, I also play field hockey and underwater hockey which helps with year-round fitness.
Coaching at Glendowie Tennis Club is great. There is a real family-friendly atmosphere and I love seeing young people getting into the sport, making friends and developing quickly. It is amazing to see people progress throughout the sport and them having fun whilst doing so.
I look forward to seeing you on the Glendowie tennis courts soon!
